Howdy...

I've stuffed something up, and not sure what... but when I start the puter, it goes thru the startup sequence and gets to a black screen with a white panel with this...

I've tried clicking both options, but it just cycles (goes blank then with that box again), and it's driving me bonkers :S

Is there anyway of "reseting" the options to have a login prompt again via the command line?

btw... Been searching the forums, and tried dpkg-reconfigure gdm and xserver-xorg...

Any help would be appreciated

Tony

Tagging your post for the unanswered posts team -- this looks like you are trying to connect to another computer at boot... but I have not seen this screen before.

well... as per the thread i quoted in my last edit, I've had to re-install completely, not before getting XDM to work, and there was no login manager to try and fix my mistake.

me has the feeling that linux is not as forgiving as xp was lol
